    If that's an old wrought anvil (most likely) it was very common to make those in two main pieces- the top and the base. (Three pieces total when you count the hard work face plate.)

    Hazarding a guess, I'd say whoever made that (probably about a hundred years ago) got an imperfect weld between the top and bottom pieces, and eventually just use, vibration and wear cracked the weld through.

    Luckily, old wrought welds nicely with modern techniques, like MIG or stick. You can vee that thing out deeply and stick 'er back together with plain MIG wire. You don't have to weld it fully, and you o want to be sure not to overheat the body- you could draw the temper out of the top face plate.

    Doc.

    Years ago I worked in a mold shop................99% of the polishing was subbed out. The place that did it had about 5-6 gals doing the work. The owner said ladies where the best at it.................just much better attention to detail and they didn't get carried away and over polish, rounding sharp edges or ruining parting lines/shut offs..........................

    And they can do it while all 6 are chattering away nonstop. I knew a wiring harness shop like that, and knew a fiberglass shop that had women laying up small molds while watching soap operas on a TV mounted near the ceiling, again talking nonstop, very few errors or rework.

    The finished part will be a light textured finish, so hopefully the polish time is minimal.. I will hear about it if it's not.
